August 6           Bad JuJu

Bad JuJu is a Delaware Blues band that is all about good old fashioned, shoot-from-the-hip blues, rhythm, blues and soul! Much of what we put out there for you may be on a list, but is not really scripted. I doubt that it will ever happen the same way twice, and that is what keeps it interesting, energized and full of vibe! We hope that you enjoy what you hear and can get lost in the music just enough to forget the day-to-day things that sometimes get in the way. We are Bad JuJu!

August 27            Chris Kirby Band

The Chris Kirby Band was formed in 2014 and is comprised of the finest live / studio musicians ina dn around Delmarva.  At first, the original thought was to be just a recording studio project band, producing recordings as needed.  However, the need to transform into something more was apparent due to requests from friends, family and artists alike.  The debut album "Whistling Past The Graveyard" was completed in the fall of 2014.  The multiple genre album contains songs comprised of Chris Kirby's musical influences starting as a young child growing up in the foothills of North Carolina.  The mountain music influence is throughout the debut album as well as rock and indie.  Aside from the unique song writing, The Chris Kirby Bands sucess is due primarily to the outstanding musicians who have contributed their time to something that has envolved into something truly special.
